Version 2.04 of the CUDA application for OS/X has been compiled for CUDA 3.1. Like the CUDA 3.1 Windows and Linux applications, it will not run with older drivers. This is a manually installed application (e.g. uses an app_info.xml file) since the server is not yet CUDA 3.1 aware.

I apologize to those who have been waiting for this update. Crunch3r sent me the app and started testing a few weeks ago and I forgot to check back to see whether testing was going OK.

Well, not sure it is working ...

I am using the latest driver and cuda kit... sadly, most of the instructions in the read me did not seem to be applicable in the sense that I do not have a lib64 directory and have no idea where the referenced files come from to copy to this non-existant directory.

So, I don't know if it is because I am using 3.2, don't have it installed correctly for some other reason, or the extra instructions are needed and I did not fulfill them and that is the reason. I had run off a bunch of PG tasks, so, CUDA is working somewhat... I guess I will have to re-enable that so I get some work done

{Add}
Note that the PG tasks are suggesting that they are running under CUDA 3.1 successfully for what that is worth. See task for an example. As always my computers are open on all projects so, suggestions are welcome...

Hi,
got the same prob here, with MAC OS X 10.6.4 ( a hackintosh@ a Double Xeon Sys ) with a GTS250 ( Driver 1.6.18.18 ) and the latestet Cudadriver ( 3.2.17 ), the Wu just crush immediately every time.

Maybe if Santa bought me two MACs for Christmas, one with CUDA and one with ATI... What is it that makes the Apple X-windows implementation worth $500 or more and it won't run on lower cost AMD chips? Oh, that's right. It pays for iPAD and iPhone R&D. I don't own either of those either. I guess I'm not "qwerty challenged" enough to need them. ;-)

After deer hunting I should have more time to work on apps. I've been tinkering with an OpenCL version (fyi, imo, the people who came up with the opencl specs should be voted off the island) but so far no luck. As I don't have a MAC with a crunching GPU, fixing the code is trial and error at this point and since nVidia dropped CPU emulation in CUDA 3.x it is even more fun guessing at where the problem is since debugging is a painful process.

If you have a Intel Sys based on the core architecture, you can try to install Hackintosh with a EFI Bootloader, forums are present.

The Cuda driver works normaly great on it, Ati need a little tweeking on this maschines.
